To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar

Other mistake: At the beginning of the film, Vida and Noxema (co) win the local pageant and advance to the national level, taking ChiChi with them as a passenger. At the end of the film, ChiChi wins the national pageant for which she was not a contestant.

Suggested correction: Vida and Noxema winning the "local" contest (New York City's "Drag Queen of the Year") did not mean they "advanced" to the nationals. They simply won a paid trip to Hollywood where they could then compete in the "Miss Drag Queen of America" pageant. However, anyone could enter the pageant.


Continuity mistake: When the women are sitting around the kitchen table drinking wine and Chi Chi comes in, they hand her a glass that is half filled. The camera is off of her for a moment and when it goes back, the glass appears to be empty. Then a few seconds later, she picks up the glass to drink and there is a sip's worth still in it.
